Configuration Management Databases: the big Reg survey
Wanna win a Reg goodie bag?
Reg Technology Panel Those among you who'd like the chance to win a Reg goodie bag should take a few minutes to complete our survey on Configuration Management Databases - known as CMDBs to their mates - which form the focus of our latest tap into the expertise of you, our beloved readers.
Ok, we admit: CMDBs may not be everyone's idea of a wild night out, but according to those in the know, they're increasingly the way to know "what is in your IT infrastructure and how it all hangs together". Indeed, our local CMDB expert reckons "some organisations get into them because they have to as part of a best practice strategy, others take them on board to simply help them manage and evolve their IT service delivery".
Well, that's what we think he said, because we sort of wandered off in a daze halfway through his detailed blow-by-blow account of why CMDBs will make the world a better place for your children and your children's children, etc, etc.
You can get to the survey (25 questions, by our count) right here. You don't need to have any more than a vague notion of what on Earth CMDBs do to participate, and if you provide your email addy (optional, and we won't sell it to Viagra spammers, we promise), you'll be entered into the goodie bag prize draw. Happy surveying. ®
